In The Knick of Time (1/1)  
Things are looking up on the internship front. Although Entertainment Weekly doesn't want me, apparently IBM does. To celebrate the good news and my upcoming interview, a bit of smut for you all to enjoy. 


Title: In The Knick of Time
Author: ClawofCat
Timing: Mid-Season 6
Rating: R
Pairing: Spike/Buffy
Summary: A drabble in which Buffy stops by Spike’s crypt and walks in on an unexpected surprise.

*******
 
Things were better; even she had to admit it. Willow was out of the house. Though Buffy asked her not to go, she was secretly relieved to no longer have to carry the burden of trying to console and treat the ailing witch. Keeping casa Summers afloat and supporting two dependents had placed a heavy strain on her meager wages.
 
Dawn, on the other hand, was more than satisfied with her departure. Willow’s absence allowed for frequent visits from Tara. She was a calming influence on them both, one that Buffy greatly appreciated. She was always willing to lend a hand when it came to Dawn and loyally offered her tacit support when that frequent haunted look crept into Buffy’s gaze. There had been a few abortive attempts to reconnect with Dawn, but with Tara’s guidance both sisters were growing closer and Dawn’s truancy became less and less acute. Though the malaise of resurrection was still strong, Buffy tried to put up a sturdy front for Dawn. It was still so hard.
 
Buffy approached the door of the crypt and pushed it open, surprised to see that Spike was not watching TV or lounging in the recliner. A few candles burned; the only sign of life was the music that filtered up from the lower level.
 
There’s danger at my door and I don’t need no more
Of her danger at my door - all I’ve been livin’ for
 
Moving silently to the hatch that led downstairs, Buffy made her way to the ladder.
 
Was for her to love me more than she ever loved anybody before
But she broke my heart oh so many times and I’m trying to fight
My will and send her home tonight

The lyrics swirled around her as she descended into the sanctum of her favorite and most unsettling pastime.
 
Too many times I’ve chased a false alarm
Too many lonely nights let down my guard
Too many memories make this moment extra special hard
cause all that I can remember is laying there in her arms
 
When she got to the bottom rung she froze and stared at the scene before her transfixed by its bizarre, yet strangely enticing quality. Spike sat naked at the edge of the bed, his hair mussed, a burning cigarette dangling from his lips as a halo of smoke drifted above his bent head. One leg was curled beneath him, while the other hung just off the floor. Her gaze settled on where his left hand held a disposable orange razor and his right rubbed shaving cream onto his balls and jerked the base of his cock. Buffy audibly gulped. He had yet to acknowledge her as he hummed along to the music crackling from the old transistor radio on his bureau. Dipping the razor into a small water-filled basin beside him, he gave his ball sac a swipe. The movement set the pair of dogtags hanging loosely around his neck swinging. 
 
What the hell…? Okay, this – I don’t know what the hell this is.
 
Buffy frowned, her brow drawing together as she watched Spike shave his testicles with a steady concentration. He had said nothing, absorbed as he was.
 
“Spike – what are you doing?”
 
He glanced up at her, an amused smile tugging on his lips. “What? A bloke can’t tend to his bush now and again?”
 
She stared dumbly at him as he swished the razor in the water and started shaving the underside of his cock.
 
What dimension have I walked into here?
 
Buffy said nothing for a long time. Just stood and watched him. Spike grinned inwardly and peered at her out of the corner of his eyes. She was just too easy. Practically creaming herself already.
 
“So is this a social call or what?” he asked, glancing up from his work.
 
“I just got off from my shift.” There was an awkward silence and Spike looked at her expectantly. A hint of egotism and self-satisfaction flickered behind his eyes as he steadily held her gaze, which had averted to his cream-slathered cock.
 
“And…?”
 
“I came here.” She watched Spike roll his balls in his hands, pulling at the skin and intermittently squeezing them in a gentle rhythm. He still hadn’t put down the razor.
 
“Can’t that wait?” she asked with annoyance.
 
“Well, unless there’s something specific that needs tending to” – Spike looked her up and down lasciviously – “I’ve got some unfinished business I’m wrapping up here.” He gave his cock a few more lazy pulls and continued to tend to his pubes.
 
Buffy stalked forward and snatched the cig from his lips, stamping it on the floor. A wry smile tickled Spike’s lips as he glanced up at her impatience.
 
“Get your ass up and come here.”
 
“Be a mo’, luv –“
 
But she caught him by the nape of his neck and pushed him roughly onto his back.
 
“Shut up,” she said, a ghost of a smile forming at the corners of her mouth as her hand slid into the foamy shaving cream.

“What? A bloke can’t tend to his bush now and again?”
I can so see Spike saying and doing this! Lucky Buffy!

Came over via ameeya's LJ and I'd like to friend you...
ClawofCat: glancesclawofcat on April 8th, 2007 08:19 pm (UTC)
Lucky Buffy indeed! I'm glad you thought this rang true for Spike. That bit of dialogue was my fave as well. Thanks for friending me! More stangely kinky updates soon.
spikesfoolspikesfool on April 9th, 2007 02:37 pm (UTC)
What!!! This was you, too? I remember reading it and thinking how incredibly hot it is.

Would you mind if I friended you? I don't want to miss any more of your writing if I can help it.
ClawofCat: giddyclawofcat on April 9th, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
LOL, yup that bit of perviness was mine too. And I'd be thrilled if you friended me.

Thanks!

Aw, I didn't leave any f/b the first time I read this. For shame!

This is so cute and cheerfully kinky. I love the way Spike just goes about his business after she arrives. It strikes me as very cat-like. ("Sorry, I'm licking between my toes. It could be awhile. Amuse yourself.")

Really like the phrase "her favorite and most unsettling pastime." I'll bet she can never predict what she's going to find when she gets to the bottom of that ladder. :)
ClawofCat: sexual tensionclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:25 pm (UTC)
Hee. I always forget about this piece, and you're right, it is sort of cute.

"Sorry, I'm licking between my toes. It could be awhile. Amuse yourself."
Oh, I know that look. That dismissive stare and turn of the head. What an apt description for Spike! I think you hit it on the head.

I'll bet she can never predict what she's going to find when she gets to the bottom of that ladder.
You could write a series of Spaiku's chronicling strange behavior by Spike that Buffy walks in on. That has the potential to be very amusing! You think they ever did their nails together? *g*
hello_spikeyhello_spikey on May 4th, 2008 02:55 am (UTC)
Aw. Love it. Feels very true to season six. And mmmmm shaving cream. hee.
ClawofCat: knowing faceclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:26 pm (UTC)
I can just see Buffy with this "Buzah?" look on her face. Like, a little disgusted, but sort of curious at the same time.
diettakramerdiettakramer on May 4th, 2008 02:59 am (UTC)
I can totally see Spike just sitting there, naked, wearing dog tags and a cigarette, shaving his balls.

So wonderful.
ClawofCat: beg for itclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:27 pm (UTC)
It's really tasty imagery, isn't it? I'm drooling a little just thinking about it. *gets the mop*
nondenomifan (formerly angelswilliam): spangel love this by kazzy_ceenondenomifan on May 4th, 2008 06:47 am (UTC)
hee! this was really fun, esp. knowing what we know about jm! I didn't realize they had to get aroused to do this deed, but I guess it makes sense! thanks for the education! LOL! thanks for posting this in FMK for the shaving challenge, too, because I never would've known about it, otherwise!
ClawofCat: wankingclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:32 pm (UTC)
What do we know about JM? Does he have issues with shaving? *is ignorant*

I didn't realize they had to get aroused to do this deed
Last night when I first read your comment, I actually called Gus to confirm this fact. According to him, you don't need to be aroused in order to shave, but it helps because there's more space to work. And a smaller chance that you'll miss something. I did not know this when I first wrote the story. I just like wanking!Spike ;)

It's nice to dust some of my older stuff off and let it see the daylight. I'll be posting a few more older fics at FmK before the month is out.
awstuff4friends: spike lmao ani by spikeshunnyawstuff4friends on May 4th, 2008 07:04 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry; I thought JM had bragged about it enough that it had gotten around to everyone: he shaves his privates. He does it with a little cylindricle thing that buzzes (I'm assuming it's a nose hair trimmer by the way he describes it) "and it feels real good." LOL! He so loves to make a show of being naughty to get his fans all riled up--when his girlfriend isn't there, that is.... A lot of people complain about him acting completely different when Patricia is at an event. He's probably scared to death she'll leave him if he acts out of line. Poor guy.

Anyway, the thing about the erection was just something I inferred from the way you wrote this. But, now, we're both edumicated. LOL! Wow! I'm good for something! Who'd o' thunk? ;-)

I'd love to see some of your other stuff. Y'know, I never thought of posting older stuff! I don't think a lot of people have, though I seem to remember Maggie posting something about that.... What a great idea! *rubs hands together*
hunenkahunenka on May 4th, 2008 09:37 am (UTC)
Hee! So cute! And I think it was something Spike really would do... especially not stopping when Buffy arrived.

I also liked the beginning of the drabble, because it was nice and almost happy (OK, so as happy as S6 can be for Buffy). I missed that in the show.
ClawofCat: sister gazeclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:35 pm (UTC)
Oh, I bet Spike cooked up all sorts of little things to torture Buffy with in S6. This scenario made a right appealing picture for me though.

The beginning of the ficlet was meant to fit into an alternate S6 verse that I was planning on writing, but that ultimately never came to fruition. I thought the details of Willow leaving and Tara doing some to help Buffy and Dawn made for an interesting change.

Wonderful! I can just picture Spike... sitting there... um... yeah...
ClawofCat: vamp spikeclawofcat on May 4th, 2008 05:37 pm (UTC)
He's quite the tease, our Spike. I also love your Clockwork Orange-esque icon. Spike sure likes a bit of the old ultra-violence :)
My food is problematic.: Gilesmrflibbleseyes on May 4th, 2008 08:55 pm (UTC)
I liked that. Loved your nonchalant Spike and startled Buffy - cute ending.

ClawofCat: feel aliveclawofcat on May 6th, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I remember quite randomly wanting to write a fic in which Buffy walks in on Spike shaving and he kinda tortures her for it. I love that he jags her around. If there's one thing that Buffy can't stand, it's being ignored.
